Blisstina - "Bliss" for short - made her on-screen debut on Sunday in The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four. According to Cartoon Network, long before he created Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, Professor Utonium created a little girl named Bliss. But, she mysteriously disappeared. Years later, as a teenager, Bliss returned to discover she has three superhero sisters.
The presence of the dark-skinned superhero - whose race was not explicitly referred to in the episode - has the Internet freaking out:
OMG YESS Bliss is so cute omg :3 LOOK AT HER!— Abipop (@abipop) September 17, 2017
Might have to watch Powerpuff girls in my 20s to check Bliss out! Love her already https://t.co/tvBrocetPH— Delphinium (@dj_borntoread) September 18, 2017
Some even see an uncanny resemblance to American rapper Nicki Minaj:

In a previous episode, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup tried to create their own Powerpuff Girl - an experiment which resulted in the birth, and subsequent death, of a "Frankenpuff" named Bunny.
Of course, plenty of people are shutting down criticism of Bliss:
Women from around the world are lending their voices to the character of Bliss. Here's a small glimpse of Bliss in action:
